Richly blending contemporary urban gospel and R&B, D.C.’s own James Murphy creates a soul-stirring sound. Once called “the brightest new talent” in gospel music, Murphy has garnered attention and acclaim for his positive message and enthusiastic performance style. His dazzling tenor voice and versatility across genres have been on full display on international stages and in performances and recordings with an impressive constellation of stars, including Patti LaBelle, Kelly Rowland, Ledisi, Coko, Byron Cage, and James Fortune. His own debut album — So Crazy, No Boundaries — features the Billboard-charting single, “Follow Thee.” Join Murphy for a night of joyful and encouraging music that will lift your spirits high.
